Do you have old ladders at home, oh well don’t throw it away because you can make it brand new if you combine rustic charm on it. Mind you, it will turn out into unexpected functionality. Especially with freestanding ladder, you can make it as a stand with shelves and I tell you it will be so stylish, and airy alternative to traditional book cases or display cabinets.
To make shelves just cut about 2 1/2 planks to size and paint, secure them with drilling deck screws so it has foundation and will not easily to fall. If one ladder is taller, shim up the shelf on the short side with blocks or books to level it. Then that’s it, you can line up now your cute miniatures or books. Easy peasy right?
